Pursuant to sections 17E(2) and 17D of the Trade (Anti-dumping and Countervailing Duties) Act 1988 (“Act”), and acting under delegated authority from the Chief Executive of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), I have initiated a full review of anti-dumping duties on the goods described in the Schedule of this notice (“goods”). This initiation follows the receipt of an application made by the New Zealand industry providing positive evidence justifying the need for a full review.
Anti-dumping duties were due to lapse on 15 July 2020 unless MBIE initiated a review of the continued need for these duties. In accordance with section 17D(4) of the Act, the existing anti-dumping duty will continue to be payable until the outcome of this review results in either termination of the duty or replacement with a new duty.
